Flow of samples to testing centres to be streamlined
| Sunday | 29th March, 2020
To avoid samples piling up at the nine testing centres in the state, the health department has decided to streamline the functioning of the centres.
At present, the state has nine testing centres and it has been decided to distribute samples from 14 districts among them.
The rearrangement of districts will be carried out once more testing centres get ICMR approval,” said an officer of the health department.
Whereas, the nodal officers in charge of the testing centres will have to record the results in a specialised format.
There are 22 people under isolation in General Hospital, 45 in Medical College Hospital, 4 in Peroorkada District Model Hospital, nine in Neyyattinkara District Hospital, one in Nedumangad District Hospital, 9 in SAT Hospital, three in Ananthapuri Hospital, 12 in SUT Hospital and four in KIMS.
